The year of 2017 in Premier League was full of surprises and shocks in equal measure. It was also the one that was packed with some amazing goals that truly took our breath away.

However, the English top-flight also witnessed some disarming moments of skill from the goalkeepers whilst trying to stop one; certain saves that weren't only pivotal in the match, but reeked top-drawer quality in pulling it off.

Whilst we've seen such eye-catching scenes several times throughout the year, we whittle it down to just 10.

#10 Petr Cech (Arsenal vs Liverpool)

What hasn't been written about the Czech Republic star that we wouldn't know already? The former Chelsea stalwart remains one of the best goalkeepers in the league despite his age and was certainly at it again when Liverpool threw the kitchen sink.

On matchday three this season, when the Reds demolished the Gunners in a 4-0 romp, Cech produced one of the few moments to savor for the beleaguered visitors with this fine save when Salah came calling.

As Emre Can laid out a pass across the face of the goal, Cech's brilliant vision allowed him to time his leap to perfection and smother Salah's chance.

Even though Arsenal was thrashed by a counter-attacking masterclass from Liverpool, Cech was proved to be the sole bright spot on an otherwise grim Gunners outfit.
